    What is agility training?


    Agility, is one of the fastest growing dog sports, and has captured the heart and soul of dog owners around the world.

    Agility is comprised of a course set up of many different obstacles including jumps, tunnels, a dog walk, teeter, an A-frame and weave poles. The idea is to run over or through the various obstacles as directed (the dog runs, you direct). Dogs gain confidence in their abilities as they learn to climb, jump, or crawl through agility obstacles…all this while having FUN!

    What are some of the skills we can learn?

    Dogs love agility. Since we love dogs, it makes us happy to see them happy. Dogs run, jump, climb, and scramble while enjoying the freedom and speed and challenge. Owners enjoy the increased bond with their dog as they work out the challenges of each obstacle. Playing on the agility field is like taking your best friend to a playground - they can't wait to go! If you have a sound dog of any size with the energy to race around a field for a minute or two you have the right stuff for agility.
